Photo Hunt: Support

MamaLoon6

I had never seen a mama loon ferrying her babies before, and I'm afraid I got a little too excited ... ran back inside to grab my camera, ran back out, and pretty much charged the poor thing to get the picture.


She didn't hang around to see what the crazy lady was up to, just loaded up the kids and made for the other shore. All I got was a grainy shot or two from too far away, from which these are cropped. Still, this was one of the highlights of my summer.

See what the other Photo Hunters have found at tnchick.com.

what a wonderful photo, the right place at the right time. I did not know they would do that.

This is a good take for this week's theme. Family support.
Have a lovely weekend.

You're right, where would we be without the support of our mommas? *smile*

AWESOME! I'd have been running to get my camera, too. You don't often see such a thing. Great take for today.

nice picture but that's not a loon, it's a common merganser

It's a merganser, all right. I never heard of them, but Google images pulled up lots of photos of her twin sisters. Thanks, gravitas! I learned something new.
